You only need to attend one of the above audition sessions in order to be considered. No appointments are necessary. You should plan to spend about 2 hours at the theater for auditions (perhaps a little more or less, depending on turnout). Actors reading for Rebecca, Wally, and Joe/Jo will be auditioned first each session. The building will be open 30 minutes prior to audition times to allow time for filling out audition forms and conflict schedules. Callbacks by invitation only: Wednesday, October 25 at 7:00 pm 

Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. You may be asked to read as a character of the opposite sex. No special accents or dialects are necessary. If specific readings are required for callbacks, we will send them via email to those we wish to see on Wednesday evening. PLEASE BRING YOUR CALENDAR WITH YOU as we will be asking about rehearsal conflicts. Headshots and resumes are NOT required. 

The directors are VERY interested in non-traditional casting and are actively seeking women, PoC, and differently-abled actors in a variety of age groups. If you have any questions, please e-mail the directors at (Michele) and (Katie). Please copy both of us in.
